      Action Alert! On Thursday, January 8, 2015, the U.S. House will vote to repeal a harmful Obamacare provision: the definition of a full-time employee as someone who works at least 30 hours per week. As employers begin to comply with the law's costly employer mandate to provide health insurance to full-time workers, the 30-hour full-time definition is already resulting in a reduction of hours and lower incomes for employees. Tell Congress to support repeal: http://www.NFIB.com/30HourRepeal. Read more about the issue at http://www.NFIB.com/ObamacareFulltime

While expensing provisions were thankfully restored to a higher level, NFIB was disappointed that President Obama threatened to veto legislation to make these tax extenders permanent.

                  Rapid expansion of medical marijuana laws is creating a dilemma for business owners. How can a drug-free workplace policy hold up to use of a prescribed, or in some states even legal, drug? The good news, says Beth Milito of NFIB's Small Business Legal Center, is that, so far, the courts have sided with employers on the issue. Off-duty use of marijuana is a valid concern for business owners, and NFIB's Legal Center will continue to protect an employer's right to maintain a drug-free workplace.
